A fresh spin on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods interweaves and re-imagines the stories of a number of beloved characters to examine whether "happily ever after" is really even possible. Unable to bear children, a baker and his wife are lured into completing a number of tasks by a witch who promises to grant them their wish. During their journey, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards. The cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in the Sky" and "No One Is Alone," took home a Grammy. It's set to get the Hollywood movie treatment this year in a film starring Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. Learn More

Another great show at the altarena. These ladies had great chemistry with each other and played off each other well. I have not seen the movie in years and didn't realize how funny the show was going to be. At one moment I was almost in tears and then I burst out laughing.
Truvy’s beauty salon in small-town Louisiana is the social nucleus for a close-knit circle of women. As they negotiate life’s ups and downs and face their own mortality, their shared bond lets them balance trust and gossip, charm and wit, sarcasm and sincerity, humor and heartbreak. The movie adaptation was the 1989 People’s Choice for Best Picture and earned Julia Roberts a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.
